Last summer my family and I visited our favorite used bookstore in Corvallis Oregon. It is a funky old place full of stacks of books. But those sellers are sooo savy. Anyway...tucked way back in a room...(because it is like a labyrinth) I found this old book on top of a stack. My heart raced as I looked through it. What beautiful illustrations... What a beautiful children's book. The title is A Baby's Opera The Book of Old Rhymes With New Dresses By Walter Crane.
I hope you enjoy these pages as much as I do...I am in the process of scanning them and cleaning them up (a new trick I have learned). I thought these would make such beautiful angels for the holidays.
